TOWSON, MD (October 12, 2017) –– Travelers be well advised, the Caribbean is open for business despite last month’s hurricanes. Fortunately, most Caribbean islands did not see major damage from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, making the region a top AAA recommended destination for fall and winter getaways.
“The Caribbean remains home to some of the world’s most popular travel destinations,” said Nancy Tabares, a travel agent with AAA Car Care Insurance Travel Center in Towson. “Vacationers, travel suppliers and the islands welcome guests to enjoy the relaxation, culture and recreation of the Caribbean.”
AAA travel experts recommend that vacationers look to these popular Caribbean destinations, which sustained minimal or no damage, for their upcoming travels:
Additionally, the Florida Keys have reopened to travelers ahead of schedule, following Hurricane Irma, and Mexico saw little impact to its tourism infrastructure following two recent earthquakes and Hurricane Katia, which made landfall in the eastern part of the country.
“While recovery efforts are ongoing, we do not anticipate that the recent storms will have a long-term impact on the travel industry. As the islands work towards a full recovery, AAA shares our care and concern to everyone affected,” added Ragina Cooper Averella, Manager of Public and Government Affairs at AAA Mid-Atlantic. “In addition to making a donation to the recovery charity of your choice, we also can help the Caribbean recover by stimulating their local economies, which rely heavily on travel and tourism.”
For anyone planning a trip during hurricane season (June 1 – November 30) or to a destination recently affected by a storm, AAA’s travel agent, Nancy Tabares offers the following tips:
Travelers should also remember that Atlantic hurricane season continues through November 30, and it’s important for anyone traveling during this time to heed the advice of travel experts and plan ahead for any unforeseen severe weather.
